Another question- Whats that Tomb of Gwynt?

Is it something I could make, perhaps buy cutting the existing warrior of my second tomb piece and glueing a spare figure into the gapI am wondering? Anyone else tried this?

Edit- This has given me an excellent idea. Will share tomorrow when I've finished it :D

@Ethica that comes from HeroQuest: A Marvel Winter Special (link)

@drathe latest version of SemiModular Icon Pack is actually working for me. Question: is the All-In-One Icon Pack loading to you? 'Cause if you get everything right (installing the latest SemiModular Icon Pack on a brand new HeroScribe 1.0pre1 setup), the reason why it is not starting up may be due to the size of ram Java is allowed to run on your machine. You might want to try this: in the SemiModular HeroScribe folder, create a file named HeroScribe.bat, then edit it with Notepad (I threw that out and only use Notepad++) and save it with this line (feel free to tweak the MB Java shall handle, I opted for 2GB when helping another user with the same -I think- issue):

Code: Select all
"C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java" -Xms2048M -Xmx2048M -jar "C:\Program Files\HeroScribe\HeroScribe.jar"

Of course, first path should lead to the current java.exe folder and second one to the SemiModular HeroScribe.jar folder.
Then run HeroScribe by double clicking HeroScribe.bat and let me know if that works to you.

All-in-One works like a charm!

As for the SemiModular pack... you hit the nail right on the head! It was RAM. I had to adjust the memory to 300M in order to get it to work. (2GB would have been nice, but poor ol'compy here just doesn't have that much. She's 11 years old and only has 768MB.)

Thank you for the help! It's much appreciated.

PS: Does anyone coding still use regular Notepad? I abandoned it for Notepad++ years ago.

Glad to know that worked! That workaround should probably go on the Help Page on my website.
I don't actually get why the All-In-One would work and SemiModular wouldn't, might be related to the icon size (SemiModular features a 20x20tiles icon by the size of 3.4MB, that could've done it).

Hey guys! I finally managed to publish the HeroScribe Icon Pack "Spaceship Corridor", featuring every icon from the popular game board: Icon Pack is available here. I would like to strongly thank Dirk for his help, if it was not for him we would not have this Icon Pack.

I have also managed to redesign every official mission map; you understand why I am not inserting them in this Icon pack.

LOL I started laughing when I read:

and so forth ........

I was thinking the same. Its called CYA - Cover Your A$$ -

If I owned Hero Quest rights I would be promoting contests for fans to write quests, work on art work. And I know even if a fan only received written acknowledgement for their efforts, they would be happy to keep an awesome game alive.
Something Wizards of the Coast should think about too.

That looks awesome! Another fine job Derfel Link.

I might actually use these to make some new quests one day. I believe some of the Agin's Classics we're working on uses a few icons from this set. Like the small suspension bridge and the pools. (They're a long ways away yet. Many others ahead in the schedule.)

That is indeed some gorgeous artwork. Had to comment just on the details alone. :)
